In an ideal world we'd all have a top notch espresso machine to serve our coffee needs. Unfortunately they are very expensive and for a pop-up bar company they are rather heavy and awkward to move around, plus time consuming to clean.
When we do an event that requires coffee drinks or cocktails, we thank the heavens for Kuka Coffee Cold Brew. It's an espresso concentrate in an attractive and sleek bottle, much lighter than lugging around our bulky espresso machine. Obviously the most important thing is still taste, and honestly I've been blown away by the drinks we've been making with it.
For this recipe I've taken inspiration from Bon Appétit, but tweaked it slightly to add Kahlúa and make the quantities easier to follow in ml. There's a video on our Instagram showing how to make at home, and here's the written recipe also.
Dublin Iced Coffee Recipe
We've designed this recipe with lockdown in mind, meaning everything should be easy to get hold of in the shops. You'll need to order the Kuka Coffee online - the boys have fast shipping so it should be with you in a few days. Here's a link their online shop.

50ml Guinness (Draught Can)
25ml Whiskey (we used Chivas Regal)
15ml cream (we used single)
Dash of caster sugar if you want it sweeter
1. Add Kuka, Guinness, Whiskey & Kahlúa to a high-ball glass and give it a stir. Taste and if you'd like sweeter, add a dash of sugar syrup or caster sugar.
2. Fill glass with ice and stir.
3. Float cream on the top and let it trickle down.
4. Give it a stir and enjoy.
